CANTON, Mass. – Dunkin’ Donuts and Harpoon Brewery, two New England-based companies, have collaborated for the first time to create a limited-time-only coffee porter beverage for the U.S. market, according to a report on Foodbev.com.

Harpoon Dunkin’ Coffee Porter is described as a 6% ABV brew with a malty flavor, a smooth mouthfeel and aromas of espresso and dark chocolate. Harpoon Dunkin’ Coffee Porter will be available in 12-ounce bottles from selected retailers only during the autumn. The bottle’s white label is decorated in Dunkin's signature orange and pink colors, making it easy to spot at stores.

“Our brands have such passionate, loyal fans, who start their busy day with a cup of Dunkin’ coffee and end it by enjoying one of Harpoon’s famous craft beers,” said Tony Weisman, chief marketing officer for Dunkin’ Donuts U.S.

“Dunkin’ has been there for us since the early days when getting the brewery up and running required a lot of beer, and even more coffee,” said Dan Kenary, CEO and co-founder of Harpoon Brewery. “We couldn’t think of a better way to pay tribute to the company that’s helped fuel our success than to create something special for our fans by combining the taste of their favorite morning brew with one of ours.”
